All of the CrossBow members attended Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, for their undergraduate degrees.
Clare Cavicchio is a Music Education major from Detroit. Her contributions to the group include lead vocals, breaking guitar strings, and tambourine. As CrossBow’s music director, she has found hip movement, arm flailing, and sass to be her most successful methods of teaching and directing the group. In her free time she enjoys distance running and eating watermelon. She always smells like vanilla.
Anna Dorsey has been involved in music her whole life. Born in Howell Michigan, she learned several string instruments such as fiddle, mandolin, guitar, ukulele and also piano and flute. In Crossbow she plays the fiddle and mandolin. Anna enjoys Disney movies and majored in Graphic Design. For Anna, CrossBow has been the most memorable part of college.
Steve Lesko is from Chelsea, MI and studied Sound Design for Film and Video Production. He has played the violin for fourteen years and has been a member in CrossBow since its inception. He is also the Keeper of Music, or more affectionately known as the "Librario." When not talking to someone about CrossBow, Steve can be found in the studio either recording/editing audio for various video and music projects, or researching more music for the group. He has a slight obsession with river otters, is "accomplished" in Mongolian Throat Singing and likes to run spontaneous 5ks in a kilt, regardless of the weather.
Adam McMillan joined this very interesting group of people called Crossbow in their musical endeavors and so far it’s just a wonderful time. He plays the clarinet and has been for 8 years. He mostly plays this in Crossbow, but also recently picked up playing the Irish pennywhistle to get some Irish blood flowing in him. (Although he’s actually Scottish so…) He is a pre-med major in the Honors program at GVSU and is planning on going into some kind of surgery or just something general and useful and highly applicable. Other potentially interesting things about him include whistling constantly(including while he sleeps), he was in band for 7 years and just joined choir, he likes to read, and is hopelessly obsessed with medieval weapons and Lord of the Rings.
Carly Meloche, yet another fiddler from Chelsea, Michigan, is a Communications graduate with an emphasis in Creative Writing. Her role in CrossBow is twofold, serving as both the logistics coordinator and hopeless narcoleptic. When she’s not tearing bow hairs, Carly’s life consists of terrible dancing, organized lists, smiling, and costume ping-pong. Get to know her; a hug and a shamock shake go a long way.
Ethan Noga is also a Communications graduate. He is a percussionist, and plays the cajon (pronounced ka-hone) in Crossbow. He can also sing if he has to, sometimes, maybe. Ethan's interests are of no consequence, as he is best defined by his dislikes.
Mark Pierce is a Psychology graduate. He likes to jam, or worship, on bass or drums to his hearts content; he loves to read the bible and watch tv (particularly stupid shows i.e. south park or family guy). He loves to do charity work when he has the time to do so, and helping out others when it's needed. He loves to listen to various bands that expand his musical knowledge and talent.
Tyler Wiewiora is probably one of the biggest Irish wanna-be's you will ever meet. He plays cello, guitar, mandolin, banjo, and sings. Inspired by the band Mumford and Sons, Tyler picked up many new and interesting strumming patterns. Irish music is Tyler's favorite style and he can often be found at parties performing numerous drinking songs. Having a good time is the most important thing to him when it comes to performing.
